Under NBA rules, once the draft starts, trades involving picks cannot be announced until all the picks have been used, so this one won't be official until early in the second round.

Zeller was expected to go in the lottery, so he represents good value at 17 -- although the Cavaliers appear to have given up a lot (two picks at the top of the second round) to move up seven slots.

Cleveland earlier surprised many by taking Syracuse guard Dion Waiters at No. 4.

UPDATE: After all the picks were used, the deal breaks down as follows: Tyler Zeller and the rights the free agent guard Kelenna Azuibuike to the Cavaliers, with Oregon State guard Jared Cunningham, Florida State forward Bernard James and Marquette forward Jae Crowder going to the Mavericks.
